Structured data helps organize your website so that Google bots can better understand and categorize it.

Google also uses structured data to display SERP features and rich snippets. Thanks to them, you can take over more real estate in SERPs!

While not a ranking factor on its own, structured data can help and supplement your SEO efforts. They make your website easier to crawl by Google, may increase your CTR, enhance brand awareness, and more.

To check which structured data will work for you, learn which markup types exist, carefully inspect your keywords of choice, and spy on your competition. It will help you make an educated guess on which SERP enhancements you can try to take over.

Then, itโ€™s just a matter of implementing structured data (how you do it depends on your CMS & skills), validating them, and monitoring your results.

Structuring your data is a must. If you donโ€™t do it, it will make your site hostile for the bots and unprepared for modern SERPs.

So get to work today!
